9:03 am
for seniors. and you're gonna love it, too. it was rated tops in technology by the leading senior advocacy group. telikin continues to redefine the personal computing experience. take a look at this. the telikin is totally different. it's the world's simplest computer. it's an all-in-one system, easy to set up, and with the easy-to-use menu guide, everything is right there for you. you simply can't get lost. you've got one touch for e-mail. over here, you have one touch for the web. and with one more touch, you're video chatting across the country. remember when you'd sit around and go through old photos in your albums? well, now they're right at the tips of your fingers. with the intuitive, easy-to-manage photo albums, you have instant access to the images of your life. you can share your photos with people in your home, or far away by posting them right online. you have calendar, weather, and news and games and so much more all in one touch. hey, if you can push a button,
9:04 am
you can use the telikin. with other computers, you have to buy additional software, you have to install it, you have to keep it up to date, and it can all be very confusing, i know. telikin comes with everything you need already there, and it automatically updates so your computer is never outdated. but the telikin, you see, is much more than a computer. it's the center of your in-home communication. you have news from the source of your choice, you have weather, music, and video. and the telikin is all about staying connected with popular social-networking sites, and e-mail with large fonts so you can actually see what someone wrote you without getting your face right up to the screen. and the video-chat feature may be my favorite part. you see, seeing your loved ones face-to-face, even if they're halfway around the world, well, that brings them closer to you. and if you're a grandparent, being able to read a bedtime story to that special little one who lives miles away, those could be the moments that bond you together, and keep you
9:05 am
connected as a real part of their everyday life. you see, the telikin has everything that you need. and the best part is, it's all right there at your fingertips. >> i was really almost afraid of a computer because i didn't know what meant what or what symbol meant that, and i'd mess it up. but as soon as telikin came on when i pushed the power button, it opened up a whole new world of ease and clarity. and all you have to do is touch the screen for homepage, the web, or the weather. it's so bright and legible. you can zoom in for close-ups for the small-print items that you want to. if you want to zoom in on a photo. all touch screen. i mean, it's wonderful. if you have never dealt with a computer before and it's always intimidated you, from the "on" button straight through, there's nothing to worry about. it's as easy as putting your finger on the screen and

9:12 am
>> we're joined now by dr. jerri edwards, a healthy-aging expert. jerri works with seniors to stay engaged in their communities and in society as they age, as well as maintaining cognitive abilities and independence as they grow older. dr. edwards, it's great to see you. welcome to the show. >> thank you. >> now, i would imagine that social isolation really is sort of not a good thing as you age, correct? >> i don't think social isolation is ever a good thing. but today more than ever, older adults tend to live farther from their families, their adult children, their grandchildren. and one of the best ways to connect with them is through the computer, because on the computer, we can not only hear them, but we can see them. we can see their facial expressions, we can see what's going on in their lives. and that makes for a better, stronger emotional connection. >> and that's so important, right? that connection to friends and family and loved ones and the world with video chatting or being on social networks. or even dating sites can help seniors as they age, right?
9:13 am
>> yes. well, a nationwide study found that older adults who use the internet are 1/3 less likely to experience depression, and that's because they're interacting with others by use of the internet. >> wow. now, hang on a second. that's incredible. and this is an official study? results from an official study? >> a nationwide study. >> my goodness. i mean, that is amazing. that's really almost shocking, dr. edwards. >> depression is one of the major causes of experiencing cognitive decline with age. and we know that if you learn new abilities, like learning how to use the telikin, it stimulates your mind, and it helps you to stay more mentally fit. it can improve you memory, it can improve your mental quickness. so, video chat and social media are ways that older adults can remain connected to their family and friends just by the touch of a button. >> another thing about the telikin is, you can play games online, but there are games that are built-in to the telikin. talk about how playing games as you age helps you with your cognitive abilities, and really just enjoying life in general. >> so, there's evidence that
9:14 am
playing engaging, challenging games is going to help maintain your cognitive abilities with age. so it's gonna help you remember things better. it's gonna help you think of things faster, recall information that you need to recall. and, specifically, if these games are engaging and challenging, there are studies that show that when you're engaged in leisure activities like playing these kinds of games, you're much less likely to develop cognitive decline, including alzheimer's disease, over long periods of time. >> well, with the telikin, you know, you have games, you have video chatting, you have your social media. but you have all sorts of other options that seniors can enjoy. you know, anything from faith and spirituality to finance to sports to travel so they can plan those trips, actually see the grandkids in person. being able to get your weather with the touch of a button, get your news with the touch of a button, it's got to make older americans feel more connected to the world. dr. edwards, i know that seniors want to be independent. they want to stay engaged.
9:15 am
how does working with the internet help people stay engaged and stay, you know, vital? >> the telikin is designed so that older adults can easily use it, and use it on their own, so that they can stay engaged in the digital age. being able to just stay connected with your friends, your family, and being able to do things on your own is important in order to maintain your independence and your health with age. >> dr. jerri edwards, it's fascinating what you've learned, and what you've been able to teach us today about aging. thank you. >> you're welcome. >> you see, the telikin really is a game changer because it's so simple to use, anyone can use it, from young to young at heart. we took the telikin to the sun city center in florida to put it to the test in front of a lively crowd. now, we had our computer experts, we had our skeptics, and some people who had never even used a computer try it out. we gave them no instruction, and we let them loose on the telikin. you are gonna love this. >> look at this. >> very good. you can access picture much
9:16 am
easier than i even imagined. >> much easier to use than a regular computer, i think. >> and this comes pre-loaded, all this stuff, huh? >> you don't need your glasses. you can enlarge the screen or shrink the screen. it's perfect. >> to me, it's so much easier to get to. i have all my categories right here. i wouldn't even know how to get them before. >> never get him off the computer now. >> yeah. >> it's futuristic. it's easy to use, easy to set up. >> i'm not that computer savvy, but i could catch on to this real quick. >> with touch screen, you know, you can type right on the screen. you don't have a mouse and all this clicking that goes on. >> ebay. there's my ebay. [ laughs ] >> well, i've worked with a computer for years in the office and stuff, and this is much easier, just as far as the speed to get around things. >> for me, as a grandparent living so far away from my grandchildren, with the video chat, i can be literally with them every day, and i don't have to wait for their yearly visit. this is a fun way to spend the day. [ laughter ] >> announcer: call or go online now to find out what thousands
